Gloomy Outlook for 2019

The overall outlook for UK markets in 2019 is not looking good, in fact it is positively gloomy. Towards the end of December there were signs that things may get worse before they get better, no doubt fuelled by the uncertainty of Brexit in the most part and global political uncertainty in general, led mostly by President Trump … obviously.

2018 was not a straightforward year and saw volatility rise to an overwhelming high; no surprise when we recall what we were up against throughout the year. But all of this means that in 2019 much skill and experience will be required to protect assets as well as see any discernible returns.

It is not only the UK that is suffering, the global markets are also expected to be highly volatile. The US markets faltered towards the end of 2018 and overall growth has reduced significantly.

Whilst we are certainly not ruling out that 2019 may be a fantastic year in terms of growth (we really don’t know what might happen) a cautious stance is a sensible one. As many of you know, we have already aligned our investment strategy and fund selection to focus on protection of assets as a priority and will likely make further changes as things develop. More will be shared at our annual Client Review day for our Family Clients in April and we will obviously share all changes made to your portfolio with you as normal.
